Haven : Meaning, Origin and Popularity

Meaning of name Haven:

Haven is an English vocabulary word, a noun meaning "a place of refuge, safety" or a "shelter". In Olde English the word hæfen was used to mean a shelter, harbor or bay, from the root element "hæf" meaning "sea". Originally used to describe a safe harbor or place for ships to anchor or dock, the word "haven" acquired its figurative meaning of "haven" in the 12th century. Today when we use the word paradise we are exclusively referring to a place of protection (such as in a wildlife refuge). A refuge is a place where people or animals can rest and flourish without the impediments of negative or hostile external elements. As a feminine name, asylum was probably coined in the same way that heaven came to be used (or Zion or Eden for that matter). They connote a sense of peace and security which are positive qualities any parent can wish for their beloved baby. the use of haven as a girl's name is currently limited to North America (United States and Canada). It is sometimes, though rarely, awarded to baby boys.


The Number Five personality! They'll stir up some action if there isn't enough around, and they're inherent risk takers who enjoy pushing the envelope. Naturally rebellious, the Five personality is fearless and never resists change. Travel and new experiences eat their souls. Five are very social and attract friends easily. People love to be around the fun-loving and exciting Five energy. This is also a lucky number in numerology (like the Threes), so fortune seems to shine on them, aided by his own optimism and good character. Five have a quick wit, a cerebral mind, and are generally very persuasive.


Haven first appeared on the American women's naming charts in 1996 and jumped to fairly low levels of moderation. It looks like that's where Haven is parking herself, at least for now. Although Jessica Alba's high-profile now-mom-turned-actress named her second daughter her baby as her asylum in 2011, we could see a nice bit of boost in usage in the years to come. naming Alba for her baby was more than just a pretty name. When Little Shelter was delivered to this world it was still inside the breast amniotic sac (a rare event). Alba's husband commented that her new baby was “born in her safe haven”, at which point he clicks on the name! You have to admit it's a very meaningful story and a cute one at that. Haven is a name of serene beauty without the religiousness of the skies. In addition, it has only been given to about 500 babies per year, which is still an underused and original option.

I am 61 years old and my name is Haven. Yes, I get call Heaven and my response is "sorry, It's closer to Miss-B-Haven"?I love the unique name even if it is becoming more common. Over the years I have had many people tell me that they wanted to name their child my name, or soon to be grandparents tell me that they were going to suggest the name for their grandchild. So seeing the ages of people with the name...I am the original, haha! ?
